Comfortable Seat

Plush rider and passenger seats deliver comfort for long hours in the saddle. Accessory seat options are available to cater to rider and passenger preferences..

Cruise Control

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function)

A compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) that gives a real-time picture of chassis orientation. KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner – from entry, through the apex, to corner exit – modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate smooth transition from acceleration to braking. Assisting riders to stay on line.

KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control)

Three modes cover a wide range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. Feedback from the IMU enables more precise control.

KIBS also incorporates corner braking control, modulating brake force to counter the tendency of the bike to stand up when braking mid-corner.

Power Modes

Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (manual) - All-inclusive modes that link KTRC and Power Mode allow riders to efficiently set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation.
